Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to inform you that Molecules will launch the second part of “Enzyme-Catalyzed Reactions”.

To generate chiral molecules is essential in synthetic organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and drug discovery. In addition to conventional chemical synthetic methods, enzymes offer an excellent tool for asymmetric synthesis and enantioselective resolution. Enzyme-catalyzed reactions show excellent chemo-, region-, and stereocontrol. Furthermore, these reactions generally proceed at room temperature at pH = 7, in water and do not require protective group manipulations.

The second part of this Special Issue will offer a good possibility to illustrate asymmetric catalysis using enzymes, its application in organic synthesis, and the mechanistic principles that govern these reactions. I strongly encourage authors to submit manuscripts for this Special Issues.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
